Thomas Wiswell was a doctor at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.[1] Wiswell is a common Jewish surname (Why is this important?).

Starting in 1983, he began to produce a series of egregiously flawed studies that claimed circumcision reduced the incidence of urinary tract infections.[2][3][4][5][6] All have long since been thoroughly discredited.[7][8] Wiswell associates with the Gilgal Society,[9] a circumfetish group.[10][11]


Easy Money

I have some good friends who are obstetricians outside the military, and they look at a foreskin and almost see a $125 price tag on it. Each one is that much money. Heck, if you do 10 a week, that's over $1,000 a week, and they don't take that much time.
